What is spousal support or alimony?

Alimony, sometimes referred to as spousal support, is a type of financial agreement in which one spouse helps the other out financially after a divorce. Its goal is to support the spouse with a lower income once the divorce is final.

How is North Carolina's alimony eligibility determined?
In North Carolina, the court takes many variables into consideration. These may include the length of a marriage, each spouse’s financial status, their contributions to the marriage, and other factors. These factors also play a part in the monetary amount that is set for alimony/spousal support.
Is it possible to change the amount of support received or paid?
Either spouse may ask for a change in alimony in specific situations. A substantial increase in income or a change in employment status could qualify as modifications to the terms of the agreement. The court will, nevertheless, consider each case separately.
Can divorcing parties handle this on their own?
You and your future spouse may be able to agree on alimony/spousal support. However, it’s essential to ensure the agreement is fair for both parties, which is why it’s typically better to consult with the legal team.
